07: Burnout - The Unspoken Part of Climbing the Corporate Ladder
Nov 25, 2019 Season 1 Episode 7
Sarah Ross

Sarah traveled the traditional path to success hoping that it would lead to the promised land of joy, purpose, and success. In college, she studied law and quickly jumped into the corporate world to climb the corporate ladder. 

Her drive and ambition were rewarded as she became the Chief Compliance Officer for an international leading fortune 500 pharmaceutical company. 

Sarah had the Instagram lifestyle of a c-suite executive in her full potential basking in the glory of her hard work and drive, but there is more than meets the eye to this story. 

Sarah is not holding back as she shares the raw experiences that led to her darkest moments and eventually her brightest spark of innovation and her reason to breathe. 

We'll Explore: 

  • How burnout and depression affect executives more than we think and the impact it can have on an organization. 
  • What are the signs of burnout? 
  • Why is burnout challenging to talk about? 

You'll Learn: 

  • How to avoid this dark place in your career. 
  • How severe burnout and depression became for Sarah and what she had to do to overcome it and find her reason to breathe again. 
  • How did ten pairs of socks teach Sarah to fail in the most humbling of ways?
